You're invited to a reading from Daniel Coleman's latest book, Yardwork: A Biography of an Urban Place (Wolsak and Wynn 2017).

After a childhood that left him feeling placeless, Daniel Coleman ended up in Hamilton, Ontario, one of Canada's most polluted cities at the time. Yardwork is his attempt to put down roots in a place he never expected to be. Coleman decided he wanted to truly know and belong to a small piece of land, his patch of garden on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment, to deeply understand its ecology, landscape, and history. Starting with the creation myths and geology, moving through the settler era and up to the present, Coleman pours his considerable talents into learning, and sharing, as much of the story of the land as possible.

Coleman's publications include White Civility (2006) and In Bed with the Word (2009); moreover, he has co-edited numerous scholarly volumes. Currently, he teaches Canadian Literature at McMaster University.

Daniel Coleman will be reading with Richard Harrison, recent author of On Not Losing My Father's Ashes in the Flood (Wolsak and Wynn 2016).
Come join Daniel Coleman and Richard Harrison as they read from their latest works and talk about how stories shape the way we see a city.
